Bread wheat producing grain in which the pericarp is purple is considered to be a useful source of dietary anthocyanins. The trait is under the control of the Pp-1 homoealleles (mapping to each of the group 7 chromosomes) and Pp3 (on chromosome 2A). Here, TaMyc1 was identified as a likely candidate for Pp3. The gene encodes a MYC-like transcription factor.(More)
The commercial interest in pigmented wheat grain flows from an understanding that they are nutritionally superior to white kernels. The pigment of purple coloured bread and durum wheat grains results from the accumulation of anthocyanins in the pericarp; its genetic basis is the action of Pp-1 and Pp3 genes. Here, the development of a set of bread wheat(More)
Cytoskeletal rearrangements were studied during meiotic telophase in a number of monocotyledonous plant species. Wild type and abnormal meiosis (in wide cereal hybrids, meiotic mutants and allolines) was analyzed. It was found that central spindle fibers that move centrifugally, along with newly-formed MTs, are the basis of phragmoplast formation and(More)
Albinism in plants is characterized by lack of chlorophyll and results in photosynthesis impairment, abnormal plant development and premature death. These abnormalities are frequently encountered in interspecific crosses and tissue culture experiments. Analysis of albino mutant phenotypes with full or partial chlorophyll deficiency can shed light on genetic(More)
A total of 40 introgression lines of common wheat (2 n = 42) Triticum aestivum L × T. timopheevii Zhuk., resistant to leaf rust and partly to powdery mildew, were examined. Based on cytological analysis of meiosis in pollen mother cells (PMC), hybrid lines were subdivided into two groups characterized by either stable or unstable meiosis. In cytologically(More)
Intracellular morphological processes of successive cytokinesis in cereal pollen mother cells during normal and abnormal meiosis were studied. It was shown that the central spindle fiber system transforms into a phragmoplast at telophase. A model of centrifugal movement of the phragmoplast as a modification of B-anaphase has been proposed.
Cytogenetic analysis was employed in studying the cause of generation of fertile awned forms in the progeny of plants, which were selected from a speltoid somaclonal wheat line monosomic for chromosome 5A (2n = 41 = 20II + I), had speltoid spikes, and were reproduced by self pollination. On cytogenetic and genetic evidence, chromosome 5A was eliminated and(More)

The abnormal cytoskeleton cycle in meiosis in pollen mother cells of cereal wide hybrids F reveals the role of polar microtubules in phragmoplast formation during successive cytokinesis. The cytoskeletal rearrangements during successive and simultaneous cytokinesis in higher plant meiosis are compared.
A protocol for raising highly frost-resistant winter wheat Triticum aestivum varieties has been developed. It is based on the transfer of the frost resistance trait from a wild wheat relative, intermediate wheatgrass (Agropyron glaucum). The protocol includes raising wheatgrass double haploid via anther culture, the selection of wheat genotypes that are(More)
